So, this is kind of off of my usual topic line, but hey, it's relevant.
Today is 9/11/11. It has been ten years.
Hard to believe, isn't it? I still remember what I was doing when it happened.
I was at Goodfellow AFB as a Lance Corporal, and we were coming back in from a break in class, and happened to notice everyone crowding around the television in the Soda Mess.
At that point, everyone still thought it was an accident. Then the second plane hit. The movement on base pretty much all ceased, since no one knew what was going to happen next.
I often wonder if that's what it was like after Pearl Harbor.
I imagine it must have been similar.
God bless all my brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces, Law Enforcement, and all those in Emergency Services. Bless those people who put their lives on the line day in and day out, protecting those who can't protect themselves.
